Sounds like you need to set the HV20 to downconvert to standard definition in order to capture into a standard definition project... HV20 needs to be set to Wide Screen DV Locked. If the camcorder is set to export HDV and PE4 is set to capture standard definition then it will not see it.
I'll be darned if I can figure out how to do that.. The HV 20 is set to Wide screen DV locked but I don't see how to set it to std definition. If you have an HV20 and can give me a step by step, I'd be most appreciative.
The widescreen DVD locked downconverts to standard definition so you should be OK. You can not change settings while connected to PE4, if PE4 does not recognize the camcorder you will need to close PE4 or even reboot.
Instructions go something like this: "Switch the camera to PLAY. Press the FUNC button and move down to the MENU icon and press the joystick in. Move down 2 icons to PLAY/OUT SETUP2 and set DV OUTPUT to Wide Screen DV LOCKED. This will downconvert the HDV to standard DV right in the camera when capturing in PE4."
have you verified your project settings, camera mode(should be in HDV)
I have worked with PE4 and this HV20 and it works fine. I believe you are having a trivial issue of settings.
Once done, it will work great.
I got it fixed. Thanks.
